hereby gives notice that a public hearing will be held on May 20, 2021 at 9 a.m. via Zoom.
Engagement of students, parents, staff and community members is important to MPUSD. We want to hear how our schools, and the district, are doing to involve and engage you in educating students.

On Tuesday, February 9, 2021, our Board of Education discussed and approved the decision making timeline for the reconfiguration and consolidation of MPUSD schools.
You may recall last school year the district convened a Vision 2025+ Task Force and engaged stakeholders in multiple community engagement meetings and surveys about the future of our schools. One of the key focus areas was whether or not to maintain 6th grade at the elementary school level.
MPUSD continues its path toward implementing a transitional kindergarten - grade 6 model in the 2021-22 school year, as well as TK - Grade 8 models, attendance boundaries, and school consolidations in 2022-23. The district held virtual staff meetings with various schools at the end of January and early February, and hosted stakeholder engagement in community meetings in February. The PowerPoint and video archive may be found by clicking the headline.
Due to traffic congestion at Seaside High, our partners at All in Monterey and The Food Bank of Monterey County, the Free Food for Families program has changed slightly. Mondays will be at Seaside High and Wednesdays will be at Monterey Peninsula College. See updated flyer.
The district offered a Town Hall to the community on the state of the community health, update on future in-person instruction, and reconfiguration/consolidation of elementary schools. PowerPoint and video archive are now available.
